Pontlliw Bake Off

The children were set a challenge to develop a variety of skills on Friday.
1. Research a wartime recipe – ICT
2. Buy the ingredients and bring in the utensils. LNF
3. Follow the instructions. Literacy
4. Weigh and measure the ingredients. Numeracy

We then cooked the ingredients. While the food was cooking, pupils washed their dishes and cleared the hall.
Then came the most important part… pupils tasted their creations. (Some tastier than others)
Pupils were independent throughout and were absolutely fantastic! Continue reading

Year 2 Candle Investigation

This slideshow requires JavaScript.


Today the Year 2 children completed their candle experiment. They discovered that the pillar candle would be the best one to send to Santa because it burned the slowest, which would then mean that the elves would have light for longer so that they could make more toys during the power cut. They completed tables using their results and then made bar charts on Hwb showing the difference in the length of each candle before and after burning. They then learnt how to send emails, and enjoyed emailing Santa to let him know about the results of their experiment. Hopefully we will receive a reply soon…

Children in Need – Reception

What a great day we all had.

Reception dressed the part and had fun making masks, counting spots and creating fantastic Pudsey pictures.

All for a very good cause!

We were all so busy, they should be tired teddy bears tonight!

Children in Need Fun!

Wow, what a wonderful day!

Pontlliw Primary did themselves proud, we pulled out all the stops (and spots).

The morning was full of busy entrepreneurs willing to give their hard earned cash to a worthwhile cause.

The whole school enjoyed purchasing toast and cakes, and even had some stalls with face painting, crayons and candles to buy.

Pontlliw swapped their blue jumpers for PJ’s, spots and Children in Need T-shirts to support other children in Britain.

So far the school have raised a fantastic total of £460 with some small amounts being brought to us next week.

CONGRATULATIONS Pontlliw, you have helped to change some lives.

Look out for our name on the show tonight

 

Egyptian Mummie Pizza’s

On Monday, the Year 3 children enjoyed making some Egyptian themed mummie pizza’s. They began by carefully cutting their muffins in half which they used as their pizza base. After that, the children measured out how much tomato purée they would need and then proceeded to create their mummie pizza using different ingredients. Olives and peppers were used for the eyes and strips of cheese were used to create a bandage effect. Well done boys and girls. I hope your pizza’s tasted as good as they looked 🙂
